Can someone estimate the age of 2inch wild caught zebra pleco's?
Also what ages do zebra pleco’s start breeding?
Thank You for your time

Hi! 2 inch zebra normally is 1.5 - 2 years of age. You'll need to wait at least for an other year to get them breed. It's very long process..... :)

It will depend on what sex it is I have breeding females that are 2" males on the other hand are a lot bigger, they also take a lot longer to mature to breeding size can be up tp 4 years for males, I have had females breed ate 19 months old.
